Subject RE: Variations on a theme by Cocoon
Date Tue, 15 Feb 2000 14:39:57 GMT
Actually, no I haven't tried that. There are certainly lots of things it
could be - from the version of Cocoon/parser/processor, to JRUN, to just the
fact that I'm running it on a bloatware OS - not sure. I am currently
undergoing a change in my work responsibilities however, so although I am a
HUGE Cocoon fan and intend to put it to the test at every possible
opportunity - that site is now somebody else's problem :-)  even with the
problems it still rocks.

The site I'm referring to is actually the development environment for the site. I don't know what other large corporations it has
crept into, but it is a key compoenent here right now.

I might try it under a real os (read "not NT") just to see though...

		Are you sure it's not one of the pieces of the puzzle like
JRun (or NT for
		that matter)?  I know JRun has gotten a bad rap on the JSP
mailing list.

		Have you tried copying your big site to the Linux box and
seeing if the same
		problems are there? (not sure if that's feasible).  It could
be something
		other than cocoon?
